Your stroll continues to Kastro, a beach on the north side of the island near the place where the inhabitants of Skiathos used to find refuge from pirates. It is also one of the places where the film “Mama Mia” was shot.
The island’s boat tour is one of the interesting excursions. The beach of Lalaria will amaze you with its pebbles and the rock with the opening. However you can also opt for a shorter excursion to some of the northern beaches where they are not accessible by car.
